fellow headache sufferers, help!

so, i have had a headache for a week. since last Tuesday. on the morning of the 4th (naturally) it decided to become a migraine, and my Imitrex didn't work, so i ended up having my husband take me to the ER. they gave me a bunch of stuff, including Benadryl and an anti-nausea medication along with a different migraine med. several hours later, i was sent home with new prescriptions for 100mg Imitrex and Zofran (anti-nausea). i still had a headache, although i could open my eyes, at least.

i STILL have a headache. for a full 7 days, i haven't had a break from this headache. it's not a migraine now, so i don't want to take the Imitrex (i hate how it makes my fingers go numb), but ibuprofen, acetemenaphin, Excedrin, caffeine, food, water, cool baths/showers, lavender oil, sleep, and weed haven't made it go away for more than an hour, and i'm losing it. i cannot deal with this constant pain and vague nausea any more. i don't know what else to do.


does anyone out there have any remedies i can try? i'm desperate.
